Darren Young to Return From Injury Soon

Darren Young is reported to be nearing a return to in ring action. He's been injured since January and has spent the past 6 months recovering from elbow surgery.

There's currently no news on where he'll be joining RAW or SmackDown, or exaclty how far away he is from competing.

Young suffered the injury during a WWE Main Event taping last month when he took a bad bump on the apron in a match against Epico.

After the match, Young posted a video of the injury on Instagram.

This was Young's second injury requiring surgery during his time in the company. He missed a majority of 2014 after tearing his ACL.


After being separated from Titus O'Neil in the Prime Time Players, Young was partnered up with WWE Hall of Famer Bob Backlund during the election season as Backlund tried to "Make Darren Young Great Again." The angle never really gained any legs and Young was last seen on RAW during the backstage harassment segment with Enzo Amore.

Maybe WWE can pair him up once against this his old tag-team partner. Titus O'Neil is getting traction with his brand Titus World Wide and his stable of wrestlers including Apollo Crews and Akira Tozawa. Perhaps Young could be the fourth member.
